This year, for the first time in my life, I have high blood pressure. It's not horrendous, but it's high and resisting coming down to acceptable levels. I've always been a supporter of the Go Red program because woman and heart disease have long been ignored. The "old" thinking was that in the long run, women were not as important as men; they weren't the "bread-winners", they "just kept house", and raised children! Well, thank God, things have changed and the medical community's thinking is catching up to reality.
